Chronicled On and Off

" Chronicled On and Off "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " There is No Innocence "

There is no innocence
in artfulness like plastic objects
locked in an archly unhearty
post-modernist mock hip-hop
of to and fro in a rippling solo
of overt self-disclosure
Prospering as smartness
in irksome dramas of reportage
with tick tick tocks in epilogues
like forearms far beyond sidearms
of familiar gotchas
As self-conscious tentative nods
gone for a romp gaudily awash
in chaotic fog-horn honks
promising knowledge
in foreign fonts
as phenomenons
Like mild larks
as vague targets
of harsh comments
chronicled on and off
an awful lot
Skilled in comic
so much
for the plots
as departures
from suicide
trying way
too hard
